Dr. Dhanuraj, the chairman of the Center for Public Policy Research in India (CPPR) discusses the institutionalized discrimination against women that is a direct product of the Kerala Shops & Establishments Act in Kerala, India. CPPR worked tirelessly with the communist-led government of Kerala to implement significant policy reforms that allow women more freedom in the market. CPPR’s policy prescriptions dismantled discriminatory measures in the Kerala Shops & Establishment Act by providing an amendment that allows shops to remain open all hours of the week, introduces shifts for employees, allows women to work beyond the previously described hours of 6am-7pm, and establishes an online business registration platform that will allow businesses to act more freely in the market.
